Read About The Best 3 Star Inverter 1.5 Ton Split Air Conditioners.
3 Star Inverter Split AC 1.5 Ton, Best In India.
1. Panasonic 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split Air Conditioner (Copper, PM 2.5 Filter, CS/CU-RU18XKYTA)
18950 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, 501 CFM, Noise 48 db, ISEER 3.9, 4 Way Auto Swing
The CS/CU-RU18XKYTA is a budget 3 star Inverter Split AC from Panasonic. This IDU has a contemporary design with the family Panasonic looks, although plastic quality is unimpressive. Similarly the ODU is well built and durable albeit with a light weight construction. Indoor unit also comes with a hidden display which further accentuates the looks and neatness. We have never been fans of Panasonic remote controls and this AC is no different since it has a very poorly designed remote with too slim buttons.
Panasonic ACs have good price to performance quotient and this model is no different. In summer heat, its a good place to be near this AC since it has 18950 BTU cooling capacity. Although the fan blower is not very powerful, it does a passable job of providing drafts of relief to the occupants. Additionally the PM 2.5 filter captures pollutants to give a healthy and cool environment. However it is noisy indoors at 48 db at max speed which can be an issue. Nonetheless all things considered especially its price it can be termed as decent 3 star 1.5 Ton split AC for those on a budget.
2. LG 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, RS-Q19JNXE)
18766 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, 441 CFM, Noise (L) 26 db, ISEER 4.00, 2 Way Auto Swing
By now we know that LG ACs are solid build, high performance ACs backed with a strong dealer network. We give you the LG RS-Q19JNXE, which is another such 1.5 Ton 3 star Inverter AC from LG. We love how LG air cons look, they are sleek and slim with a pristine and simple gloss finish. This particular model is no different. The air filter is located at top and is reasonably easy to clean and maintain. Moving on the ODU is wrapped in a metal skin and alas, LG listened to us and beefed it up a little bit. This unit is now somewhat more rugged than before tipping the scales at 28.5 kilo grams. While its not a heavy duty masterpiece it does not feel light weight anymore.
The cooling of this 3 star rated AC tops out at 18766 BTU which is decent and good performance on every parameter. However the the drafts of this AC do not reach the distance and the cooling takes a while to engulf the entire room quickly. It is rated at 441 CFM, for comparison some of LGs own 1 Ton AC has 425 CFM blowers. Oh God! It also lacks 4 way auto swing mechanism, not that’s a double whammy. This AC has very good ISEER of 4.00 which is a much needed improvement over PS-Q19YNXE whose ISEER was 3.68. There is a silver lining to it though, that being that the noise levels are super low. Perhaps this AC is not that bad after all and is especially well suited for those areas where the door is not frequently opened.
Do Note this AC is more or less identical to PS-Q19ENXA1 and PS-Q19JNXA1.
3. Samsung 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, AR18BYLZAUR)
18767 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, 487 CFM, Noise 45db, ISEER 3.71, 2 Way Auto Swing
Samsung is a well acknowledged brand, especially for appliances such as ACs not only because of quality of their offerings but also thanks to the wide and strong after sales network. Coming to the AR18BYLZAUR, its 1.5 Ton 3 star split AC with an Inverter compressor. The exterior has a dual tone finish which looks elite and premium. Apart from that the quality of plastics, the filter access mechanism all are of very good caliber. Although the outdoor unit felt a little skinny, it is well put together and is rather shipshape.
Alright pace yourself, especially since this is about cooling. This split AC dons max 18767 BTU per hour cooling capability. What it means is that this 1.5 ton split is very potent and capable. However the blower is not to our liking, since it is lethargic and slow for a 1.5 ton AC, best suited to rooms which are not too long. Moreover Samsung has conveniently avoided giving a auto horizontal swing feature to it. Plus it also is devoid of a PM filter too. In totality its a decent AC and given its budget price a good buy if you are looking for a new 1.5 ton split AC in India. View the AR18BYNZBWK AC, its powerful and has Wi Fi too.
4. Daikin 1.5 Ton 4 Star Inverter Split Air Conditioner (Copper, MTKL50U)
17740 BTU, 4 Star, Inverter, 572 CFM, Noise 45 db, ISEER 4.00, PM 2.5 Filter, 4 Way Auto Swing
MTKL50U is a 4 star rated 1.5 Ton Split AC from Daikin, the refrigeration powerhouse. It features a dual tone front looks which is aesthetically appealing, yet not too imposing. The silhouette is clean and the rounded body adds to the overall looks. The build of IDU is of good quality and it feels generally solid. The ODU on the other hand feels somewhat light in weight and is not particularly inspiring. Having said that, the sheet metal and the overall structure seems pretty robust.
This particular Daikin 1.5 Ton split AC is not a beast in terms of cooling capability. At its core it has a passable 17740 BTU capable compressor, which is not the most powerful, clearly. As a result the AC although high in efficiency is not the most suited for rooms with high ceilings and ones which are long. Talking about the length, the cooled air travels decent distance, thanks to an adequately powerful motor. Unexpectedly a 4 way auto swing is provided, it helps focus and concentrate all of its goodness easily. In more good news the noise levels are in check with max noise being 45 db only. Thankfully a PM 2.5 filter is provided which helps capture harmful pollutants in air. Finally it can be inferred that this Inverter AC although average in performance is a good buy and is best suited to medium sized room only.
5. Sanyo 1.5 Ton 3 Star Dual Inverter Split AC (Copper, PM 2.5 Filter, SI/SO-15T3SDIA)
18420 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, 441 CFM, Noise 48 db, ISEER 3.70, PM 2.5 Filter, 2 Way Auto Swing
The SI/SO-15T3SDIA is a superb value for money 1.5 Ton AC from Sanyo. The AC is a well built unit but has a generic and crude looks. The plastics used are are not the best in business, albeit a gander at the AC wasn’t enough to reach this conclusion. The weight of ODU is approx 27 Kgs which is rather low for a 1.5 ton inverter AC. Moreover the remote is a small unit with slim buttons which are counter intuitive. On the bright side the AC is a budget friendly option and is perhaps one of the cheapest 1.5 ton 3 star inverter AC currently available.
The performance of this AC has reduced vis a vis SI/SO-15T3SCIC. The BTU have dropped to 18420 from 18750, while the drop is small the effect is certainly felt, nonetheless its a decent compressor with enough potency to air condition a mid sized room. However for reasons beyond my understanding Sanyo has plonked a much weaker and slower fan blower which tops out at 441 CFM, this is bordering 1 ton territory here. It does not stop here, although the AC remains 3 star rated the ISEER has reduced a smidgen from 3.80 to 3.70. Its all very disappointing. Thankfully the PM 2.5 filter is retained. Don’t loose hope so soon, because its priced very competitively and thus has a very superb value for money quotient. As a result its a recommended 3 star 1.5 ton split AC.
6. Lloyd 1.5 Ton 3 Star WiFi Inverter Split AC (Copper GLS18I35WSHL)
17913 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, 471 CFM, Noise 40 db, ISEER 3.67, PM 2.5 Filter, 4 Way Auto Swing, Wi-Fi
GLS18I35WSHL is a 1.5 Ton 3 star split AC with WiFi from the Havells brand Lloyd. Like with all Lloyd ACs this unit is very well rounded and the Indoor unit feels more small than it is. Similarly the outdoor unit is a hefty unit and therefore puts any concerns about durability to rest. Combined with silver accents this Air conditioner is smart in looks which very well complements its “smart” feature-set.
The cooling of this split AC is nothing to boast about, i.e., it is just average. Don’t get it wrong, the AC cools and does it job but when compared to industry heavy weights it feels somewhat laggard. For instance its fan speed is not too fast, being rated at just 471 CFM. The compressor is an average unit too, topping out at just 17913 British Thermal Units. Not all is bleak though as this AC is equipped with good purification capabilities such as HEPA filter and the whole shebang. Likewise it also comes with 4 way auto swing mechanism, which is always a welcome addition. Finally its Wi-Fi enabled making it a smart AC and voice control capable. On the whole all things considered it is definitely one of the best 1.5 ton split AC in India
7. Whirlpool 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC Magicool Pro/Pro+ 3S
21838 BTU,3 Star, Inverter, 650 CFM, Noise 45db, ISEER 3.85, 2 Way Auto Swing
The Whirlpool Magicool Pro+ 3S (SAI18B39MC1) is a budget friendly AC with inverter compressor and 3 star energy efficiency rating. Both the indoor and outdoor unit are well built of durable metals and plastic alike. Firstly the indoor has got the ho-hum looks, which is uneventful. Similarly components are well protected by the metal body of the ODU. The total weight of the ODU is approx 30 Kgs which although is on the lower side compared to some of its competitors seems adequate.
As a result of a high performance compressor the AC is able to cool at 21838 BTU/hr which is rather impressive. Moreover it is able to do that with a respectable ISEER of 3.85. In more good news the air flow speed is very strong and fast at 650 CFM, which in turn means that it can not only cool down the farthest corners of room quickly but also capture harmful pollutants larger than PM 2.5 quickly thanks to its HEPA filter. Unfortunately the AC is equipped with only 2 way motorized swing and left/right direction needs to be set manually. In some more important information the IDU operates quite discreetly making just 43 dB of noise even at max fan speed. In totality taking into account its price, performance features and its shortcomings it would be wise to categorically term this a fantastic 3 Star 1.5 ton Split AC.
Superb 650 CFM blows strong gushes of air.
PM 2.5 filter.
Backlit enabled remote.
Strong cooling of 21838 BTU/hr
Budget price point.
Only 2 way auto swing.
3 star energy efficiency rating.
PM 2.5 filter gets clogged rather quickly, needs frequent cleaning.
8. LG 1.5 Ton 4 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, MS-Q18HNYA1)
18766 BTU, 4 Star, Inverter, 653 CFM, Noise (L) 31db, ISEER 4.2, 4 Way Auto Swing
MS-Q18HNYA1 is a 1.5 Ton 4 star Inverter AC from LG. This 5 in 1 AC from LG is a well designed and high quality product. While the outdoor is made of metal its rather light in weight for a 1.5 Ton AC. However the indoor is made of finely crafted plastic which looks elegant and gels with all interiors perfectly. A curvy front gives an impression of a smaller IDU then it is otherwise. Furthermore the remote is a nifty unit with a well thought layout which makes it easy to use in the dark too.
This LG AC is a high performer unit and is able to chill and bring down temperatures rather quickly. It has a powerful air fan speed of 653 CFM and together with a solid 18766 BTU, the AC is very effective in totality. The noise levels of the AC are quite low too at all fan speeds and therefore the AC is mostly unobtrusive. Thankfully the AC is provided with 4 way auto swing which makes focusing it cool air precisely. A solid ISEER of 4.20 ensures that electricity bills are in check. In totality this split AC is very good and one of the best 4 star 1.5 Ton Split AC with inverter compressor in India.
9. Voltas 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (183VCZS)
17572 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, 559 CFM, Noise 46 db, ISEER 3.8, 2 Way Auto Swing
The 183 VCZS is a 1.5 Ton Inverter AC offering from Voltas. The indoor unit looks typically Voltas with a boxy design language that feels a bit large. However the hidden temp. display is a welcome feature and adds a bit of flair to the looks. Similarly the ODU is a run of the mill affair (as should be) and seems well built and sturdy despite it being just 27ish kilos. Furthermore the remote control is a well designed one, with controls and buttons placed ergonomically.
Right of the bat the AC impresses with its chilled air which is very well focused. The AC has a modest fan speed of 559 CFM which should cover the length of a medium sized room with ease. Similarly the BTU of 17572 makes sure that the AC cools the room down quickly, however it can struggle during high outdoor temperatures. Add to that the fact that AC makes as much sound at 559 CFM as other AC which have stronger air flows in excess of 600 CFM. In more bad news the AC is only equipped with 2 way Auto swing and even lacks a PM 2.5 filter. Be that as it may it is a well built AC and rather efficient and best suited for those looking to buy a good 3 star inverter Split AC of 1.5 Ton capacity on a budget in India.
10. AmazonBasics 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC AB2020INAC021
17231 BTU, 3 Star, Inverter, ~575 CFM, Noise ~45 db, ISEER 3.98, PM 0.3 Filter, 2 Way Auto Swing
The AmazonBasics 1.5 Ton Inverter AC is one of the cheapest and most budget friendly available in India. Unlike then PBAC18K3INV301 (2019 model made by Guangdong Midea Air-Conditioning Equipment Co., Ltd. China). AB2020INAC021 2021 model is made in India however. The newer model is more modern looking, more wider, has a better remote and looks and feels improved in almost every aspect. Finally the hidden temperature display adds to the looks and ease of use.
The AC has 17231 BTU /hr cooling capacity which is kind of expected at the entry level price point. Although its a 3 star rated AC its ISEER is mighty impressive at 3.98. Further even though we do not have any official air flow rating, a rough comparison puts it around 575 CFM which is pretty darn decent. The AC quickly and efficiently works its magic to bring down the mercury, and it does that by not making too much fuss and without stressing the power meters. Wrapping it up in the end by stating that this AC is a performer and value for money king as far as 3 star 1.5 ton inverter split AC go.
Budget, entry level price.
Impressive ISEER of 3.98 for a 3 star AC.
Adequate air flow of ~575 CFM.
PM 0.3 filter.
Long term reliability in an unknown territory.
2 way manual air swing.
Mediocre 17231 BTU.
11. Haier 1.5 Ton 3 Star Split AC (High Density Filter, HSU18T-NMW3B)
17572 BTU, 3 Star, 530 CFM, Noise 44 db, ISEER 3.55, 2 Way Auto Swing
HSU18T-NMW3B from Haier is an affordable 1.5 Ton Split AC. The split has a clean overall look, with minimalist design cues. Curved corners, sloping louver give it a stylish look however. The plastics used are of good quality and give a sense of durability. Moreover the outdoor unit is hefty and feels very robust at 36 Kgs. The remote control has a good layout and although is not backlit, it has glow in dark buttons.
This 1.5 Ton Split AC has a nominal cooling capacity of just 17572 BTU/hr and therefore struggles to effectively cool (quickly) a medium sized room. A so-so fan speed of 530 CFM doesn’t help the matters too. On the bright side noise levels are capped at 44 db at maximum. In more good Haier claims that compressor works till ambient 54 deg, which sets this split apart. Celsius which is not bad. Like many other budget ACs not only does this split lack PM2.5 filter but also motorized horizontal swing. In conclusion this an affordable 3 star 1.5 ton non-inverter split AC but certainly far from the best.
Solid, heavy construction, hidden temp display.
Controlled noise levels.
No PM 2.5 filter.
Mediocre fan air speed of 530 CFM.
2 way auto swing only.
Lackluster 3.55 ISEER.
